High Severe Weather Potential Ramping up for this Week
We are in the heart of Severe Weather Season across much of the United States, which means its no surprise that we are coming off another active weekend of severe storms for the parts of the Central Plains over the weekend; however, it looks like our atmosphere is showing no signs of settling down. At least for the remainder of this week.
Today and tomorrow have already been upgraded to an enhanced risk for severe storms yielding a primary concern of large hail, damaging winds and the risk for isolated tornadoes. The risk for Monday will be the highest across southwest Texas north into western counties in Oklahoma.
Tomorrow, the risk shifts very slightly east but relatively remains consistent across the countries mid-section. Tuesday afternoon hold another chance for large hail, damaging straight-lined winds and isolated tornadoes (primarily inside the orange-shaded areas) for Nebraska, Northeast Colorado, Kansas, and Oklahoma.
On Wednesday, the severe weather threat shifts a little farther north around the mid-west region from Nebraska, Missouri, Illinois, Kansas and Iowa. As of now, there is only a slight risk issued and with it being a pretty broad area of the mid-west, it is likely the SPC could upgrade to an enhance for a more localized focus on tornado potential and/or large hail.
